Multi-day hikes – suggested hiking routes plus overnight accommodation

With over 300km of hiking trails, the Aletsch Arena is well-known as a hiking paradise in Upper Valais. Along the Aletsch Glacier, in the middle of the Aletsch Forest – one of the oldest and most beautiful forests in Switzerland – and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the hiking pleasure is virtually endless.

Here we have put together a selection of the most popular multi-day hikes with overnight accommodation. We particularly recommend the mountain huts, which make the hikes along the largest glacier in the Alps an experience to remember.
